Let Love And Pride Never Fade

In our most nepotistic article to date, Bob Perfect writes about his best friends’ band. That band is Go! Go! Bronco though so we doubt you’d mind too much. Here’s a look back at the last six years of one of the wildest, loudest and most debaucherous bands to have come out of Durban.     I know this article is late, really late, but it took Go! Go! Bronco six years to release an album so it seems fitting. I have to admit... Read More

Win Free Entry To PH Fat This Friday!

Girl, we love you so much (Jump mother fucker etc.), which is why we’re giving four of you free entry to PH Fat’s gig at Origin this Friday thanks to Uber Cool.   There’s no chance you haven’t heard of these dudes before, so it’d be redundant to talk them up to you. You know they destroy the Engine Room every time they’re here and you know you wanna go, preferably for free.   “How do we win?”... Read More

Taxi Violence, Relationship Sex and Poppers

DJ Fuego Heat kicks the year off by catching new comers The Pie Keys, stalwarts City Bowl Mizers and visitors Taxi Violence at Live. It’s mostly posi. Mostly. And there’s talk of sex and poppers.     “Can you cover the gig tomorrow night? We have no one else to do it”. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the charm of Bob Perfect, and how Saturday night saw me heading to Live to check out The Pie Keys, City Bowl Mizers and Taxi... Read More

House Ain’t A Home

As many of you noticed, The Winston Pub is slowly starting to revive itself. Evidence of this was the recent Truth and It’s Burden show with Brainwreck, Provider and We Were Archers. A hardcore show, at The Winston, with more than a handful of people? Rejoice people for there are still good days to come! Russell Grant shares his thoughts on the night.     The Winston Pub is in the take off phase of its revival. The most dangerous... Read More

Cowabunga Bitches!

Last Friday saw Live playing host to three touring bands from different parts of the country, two relatively new bands, The Dollfins, Beach Party and the more experienced Wrestlerish, with City Bowl Mizers being the home team for the night. Eliza Day shares her experiences of the night.   This past weekend was a biggie for us Durban cats. With so much on the dance card, people were in a frenzy of anticipation on social media. There was talk... Read More

Piece by Piece

ISO recently returned to Live to release their latest album, Piece by Piece, with instrumental sludge metal band STRAGE and the indie popsters Asleep In Transit sharing the bill. It was a weird one. Bob Perfect reviews the show.   It felt good to be back at Live for ISO’s Piece by Piece album launch. With the “new” and improved Winston re-opening the previous week, and Live moving forward despite their rather messy, confusing and long... Read More

Desmond & The Tutus Mnusic Launch

Last Thursday, South Africa’s geeky indie darlings, Desmond & The Tutus,  came down the coast for a midweek gig that packed out Live. Eliza Day reviews the Tutus and Black Math’s performances.    I was interested to see what Desmond & The Tutus, the beloved Jozi band would bring with their new album, MNUSIC. I grew up listening to this band with the first wave of new millennium indie kids and was hoping that they had... Read More
